Default Re: Cardboard & Duct Tape

there's a guy around here, haven't seen him in awhile, but his name was Jim and he was a 50 year old guy with the mind of a child, some kinda mental problems, but he had a bike with plywood wings, tailfin, and a kickstand he made out of the hook that stops fighter planes on a carrier ship.

he also had a boombox with a microphone and he played airplane noises on it and yelled at people all the time, in a friendly way.

the locals called him "the blue angel," as his bike was painted up blue and yellow, and he was featured in the newspaper when the real Blue Angels came to town. you could find him at the donut shop near disneyland.

i wonder if he's still around. i'd donate a motor for that bike...
